The EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training in Next Generation Computational Modelling (NGCM) brings together world class simulation and modelling research and provides a stimulating training programme for PhD students. The centre is jointly funded by EPSRC, the University of Southampton, and industrial partners. Fully-funded studentships for at least 11 PhD students per year are available in a diverse range of scientific fields, such as Engineering, Chemistry and Physics.
The 4-year PhD programme consistes of a taught first year with some research components, followed by three years of full time research. The taught component provides comprehensive training in state-of-the art computational modelling methodologies, including programming and software engineering for computational science and engineering, simulation methods and numerical techniques, and high performance computing; combined with additional transferable skills training. The research component of our PhD programme will push forward and innovate computational methodology, such as exploitation of emerging parallel hardware, new multi-physics, multi-scale and multi-paradigm simulation methods, and tools and methods to apply computer simulation in an effective and reproducible way. This will happen in the context of applied real-world research problems, generally in collaboration with our diverse set of partners.
